The U.S. intelligence community has long warned that Russia and China are attempting to undermine and subvert American democracy. The election of President Donald Trump placed much of the attention on Russia as intelligence officials said they believed Russia tried to affect the outcome of the 2016 election.

A number of voices in corporate media and the political establishment have claimed that Russia is a more pressing adversary. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that the threats of election interference from Moscow and Beijing were not equal, the Associated Press reported.
